Jerry West (Jokingly) Wants a Royalty from Being the NBA Logo


In a tremendous piece on Grantland, Jerry West opens up about the NBA logo being in his image. (Be sure to read the entire article): “West on being the league’s logo: ‘I knew a long time ago, and they would always say it’s an urban myth. It wasn’t, and I knew it wasn’t. It’s not important. It’s not important. Some people say, ‘Oh, what an honor.’ Anytime somebody recognizes you, it makes you feel good. It’s not honoring a person. That’s not what it’s doing. It’s promoting an image of the league, which is always important to me.’ He adds with a laugh: ‘I think it would be nice to get a royalty off of that. That would be pretty cool.’”

    Good to know the man can laugh. Every time I’ve seen him on TV, he looks like he’s about to explode from stress. Lots of people live and die by the game, but he wears it on his face like nobody else.

    This page would have got about 5,000 more hits if it had been headlined with ‘Lakers legend Jerry West’ and without the ‘(jokingly)’. C’mon Slam, think of your advertisers!
